They have tips on how you can focus your shopping and direct more money to support Michigan business.There is a pledge you can take to support Michigan businesses.

It might cost a little bit more to buy something from a local provider than it does at a big box chain, but the local business owners are the ones who keep things afloat in YOUR neighborhood.Check it out here:
